Southern Girls 1st Anniversay Blog Hop!!!

Can you believe we are a year old?, and what a fantastic year it has been with the support from all our wonderful sponsors, and to be on the best Design Team anyone could wish for. In celebration of this, we have an amazing bloghop with some of our fantastic regular sponsors giving away fabulous prizes. You should have arrived from Alicia's blog, if not, head back to www.southerngirlschallenge.blogspot.com where you will find a full hop list.

For this challenge the theme is layers...a tough one for me, but here's what I came up with...



 I managed to get the layers down w/o too much trouble, yay!! However, I got a little carried away with making the scene and so it's quite large and adding lots of stuff just didn't feel right. So, clean and simple layers is my choice for today!  But hey, I had to layer the images too, so that's two for one,lol.
I have used an image(well, 3, I had to go buy more,lol) from Deb's Creations. I was given the adorable Ebony(the foremost image) to use, but I got it in my head that I'd like to make a scene so I sought out some more. I decided to purchase 'Boo & Snookie' (litttle boy and snail) and 'Ally and Beeble'(girl and ladybug) to go along with 'Ebony'. Deb's Creations is giving away 2 Emerald Faerie Digi to one lucky lady who 1 - comments on my blog and 2 - enters the challenge at Southern Girls.


 Here's a closer view of my scene. This was colored entirely with copics and I added some extra grass here and there so it flowed a little better. The background image I used came from Make it Crafty and is called ' Tulip Garden'.  Sorry, no copics today as there were just too many to try and get a good pic, but if there's something specific you'd like to know just ask and I should be able to figure it out.


So, to recap.... the rules are simple, make sure you make a card and enter on Southern Girls Challenges, also leave me a comment, and on the 20th of September I will draw a random name, that will be a winner of the sponsor that I am showcasing.
Now, head on over to Tracy, have fun......
